I purchased the G RAID 8 TB with Thunderbolt drive. MY OS is High Sierra and I am working off a MacPro. When I attempt to convert the from RAID 0 to RAID 1, I cannot progress in the RAID Assistant. It won’t allow me to, the option ‘Next’ is grayed out. What is the process for converting this disk to RAID 0 to RAID 1?
You don’t use the RAID Assistant to convert the RAID. The device you purchased is a hardware RAID device. The RAID Assistant in Disk Utility is for software RAIDs.
You need our configurator software here: G-RAID Configurator
This is the same instructions I posted in the other thread you posted in. https://community.wd.com/t/12tb-g-raid-out-of-the-box-wont-setup-as-raid-1-grayed-out-mac-sierra/202606/7
Thanks to caterineb for the thread and Rydia for the post. This addresses my exact issue. I had bounced from thinking that my new G04085 is hardware RAID; to downloading a G-RAID utility that told me that, on a Mac, it is software RAID instead; to failing with software RAID; to finding a forum post that said that software RAID requires Thunderbolt; to buying the needed Thunderbolt connection adapter to plug into my new iMac; to having software RAID fail again; to finding this post, which finally got me going.
